Rapper Big Boi and wife Sherlita Patton may be headed for Splitsville. Reports have surfaced that his wife is filing for divorce following an 11-year marriage.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Sherlita filed official court documents on Wednesday (Oct. 2.), stating that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” She also seeks alimony, an equitable division of marital property and attorney’s fees.

Things seemed all good almost a year ago when Big Boi spoke on his love life following the release of his Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors album.

“I ain’t got shit to hide. I’m human like everybody else. And shit, my marriage and everything is great,” he told HipHopDX in December 2012. ” I’ve been with my woman for twenty years [total]. We’re going on our 11th anniversary come Valentine’s Day. We’ve got three beautiful kids. I’ve got a daughter that’s about to go off to college. And, life is really, really good like Nas said. I’m loving this shit.”

She and the Outkast MC, real name Antwon A. Patton, wed in February 2002. They have two daughters, ages 18 and 12. Sherlita is also reportedly seeking full custody of the younger child and child support.
